  1. Ahhhh! I leave tomorrow morning for Jamaica. My wedding is next Friday! I hope I did everything I was supposed to. All I have left to do is pack... which I've been trying to do for a week. I have so much to bring. Hoefully I've pawned off enough items to others that everything will now fit. I hope everything works out. Wish me luck!

And the 13th we're doing a catamaran excursion... and then it's our weddings, so.... Thos are the dates I suggest. "Where" is another story... Lol. At a bar.... somewhere? I've never been to the resort. Haha.
  4. 3 weeks tomorrow, I'll be on a plane. I can't believe we get married on the same DAY! That's crazy!

I see both in the Dolce Vita pics. I believe we have the choice between round or rectangle tables. They seat 8-10 people each. I think I like the round best.

Thanks I bought starfish bottle openers (beer, not wine.) and bottle stoppers (wine) with starfish on top. It's the year of the starfish... and the colour turquoise for me. Haha. Also, I bought my ladies swarovski starfish earrings. They are simple, stud-like earrings... not too gawdy. So they can wear them again. And decently priced.

I'm scheduled for a 4pm ceremony, dinner at the Dolce Vita and the gazebo with DJ in the evening. So exciting! Maybe we'll see you there. I have had some difficulty back and forth with the WC's. I plan on calling mid-October to try and figure some things out, while still giving myself time to change some things if I need to (like the way I bring my music for example.) My grandma is a seamstress, so she's bringing a travel steamer for me. I've heard other brides say they are/or have steamed up their bathrooms with their dress in it, and it usually does the trick. Or, buy a steamer?

I bought too many, so I'll just bring a couple extras. I have survival kits (Aloe Vera, Advil, First aid kits, lip balm, tums, sanitizer, aveeno moisturizer, gum - in out wedding colour! Ha!, wet ones, emergen-c, I think that's it. I made brochures, and have "travel books" on jamaica I got for free. And some Sudoku, or Crossword/Wordsearch books. The bridal party are also getting sarongs and tank tops with bedazzled labels (Bridesmaid, etc...) I think that's it. I'll probably go pick up some cute pencils and throw those in too. And the 3 children who are coming (cousins) are getting a few colouring books and such.

Hope you have a beautiful wedding! Let me tell you, these 100 days will fly by! I get married Nov 15th, and leave in less than 40 days. I think 38? It's madness. I feel like there's 100 things to do!?!?! Ahh!
  11. Just figured out mine! Leaving in 40 days. Something old: My mom is going to pin to the under of my dress - it's a secret - but I think it's one of my grampy's old military pins. Something new: My dress Something borrowed: My Mom got married 5 years ago. I'm borrowing her headband/tiara bling. Something Blue: My wicked awesome satin peep-toe shoes. With starfish bling.

I definitely think we all need to meet for a drink! I'm also having my hair done by Rashel Edwards - I booked her for the wedding party (2 bridesmaids) My mom, Nanny, and Aunt. I booked Christopher Lee through the resort. I didn't want to deal with "vendor fee" issues for photography, and plenty of family will take photos with our good Nikon camera's. I have a few photography nerds in the fam. We should all meet for a drink. The grooms' are going to be a little confused.... "How do you ladies know each other?" Haha!

I understand she was stressed during the wedding, it's been a few over a month and still nothing not even a thank you card and we spent over 3,000 going over there. my dilemma is that now iss my turn to be married im going to have a dw as well her husband and my boyfriend are brothers so hes definitely going to be in the wedding. SO DO I ASK HER? I don't want to look mean in front of my boyfriends family. im so torn. If it makes sense (numbers) and you need another girl, sure, ask her. If you have "your girls" and your numbers match the way you want them to without her in the wedding party... there's no need to ask her. It's not a matter of if she thanked you or not for stepping in as a bridesmaid for her wedding.... if you don't have a strong bond/relationship with her, no one should expect you to ask her. If she's not going to be a supportive BM, etc... don't worry about it. I said a lot of "No's" throughout this planning process, to family and such..... they get over it.

Also I have a wedding party of 5 girls,and my mother being looked after by Rashel and her stylist (this I know could be argued why I should be charged the vendor fee) BUT I have 4 or 5 guests who want hair and makeup done and are making reservations with the spa. Surely the spa can't handle hair and makeup for at least 11 people, so does anyone agree that I'm not crazy if I ask for that fee to be waived because A. No airbrushing at the spa and B. the spa is still getting a "wedding party" sized booking from my guests Hi, I advised the WC's that I was using Rashel Edwards, and they replied to my email (as there were several details in my email) but they did not acknowledge anything about Rashel, or a vendor fee. I am going to argue the same points as you. I was not notified of a vendor fee, your spa does not provide airbrushing. The most you should have to pay is a $75 day pass for her to be in the resort. Which I believe other brides have said in this forum. I'm using Rashel for Hair & makeup, as she was priced better and frankly, has better reviews. I have hired Rashel for 6 people, but I don't know if any of my wedding gusts will get hair or make up done at the spa.
